Inside Game is a 2019 movie about three friends who try to make it big in the world of sports betting. The film is directed by Randall Batinkoff and written by Andy Callahan and Robert H. Callahan. The story follows Tommy Martino (played by Luke Guldan), who along with his two childhood friends, Marty (Scott Wolf) and Bobby (Michael O'Keefe), runs an illegal sportsbook. The trio have been running the book for years, but they are starting to feel the pressure from the police and the mob, who they owe a lot of money to.

One day, Tommy gets a call from NBA referee, Tim Donaghy (Eric Mabius), who tells him that he can use his knowledge of the league's games to make them all a lot of money. Donaghy tells Tommy that he can manipulate the games so that the outcomes will favor the bets that Tommy's group is making.

At first, Tommy is hesitant to get involved in something so risky, but Marty convinces him that it's worth the risk. They begin to work with Donaghy, who gives them inside information on games that they can bet on.

As they start to win big, Tommy, Marty, and Bobby become more confident and start to take bigger and bigger risks. However, they soon realize that they are not the only ones who know about Donaghy's involvement in the betting world. The FBI and the mob are both on their tail, and they must find a way to escape their grasp before it's too late.

The movie is a gripping thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. The performances from the cast are all fantastic, with Luke Guldan giving a standout performance as Tommy Martino. The film also features some great cinematography, with scenes shot in dark, claustrophobic rooms adding to the tension.
